When not at college, Jenna has babysat Shane’s only child on and off for years. She’s always wanted Shane but too shy to do anything about it. Tonight, that’s going to change. If he won’t make the first move, she will.

Shane has been divorced for years. Being a single dad and advancing his career takes up a lot of his time. The last thing he needs is for Jenna to catch him lusting after her whenever she comes over to babysit. Then he arrives home to a dinner she made and everything changes.

(This explicit story is intended for adult readers only)


I liked the layout of this story; it wasn’t just straight into the fun stuff, a casual story built from the start. You get a very clear impression that Jenna has held feelings for Shane for some time now and has waited until the time was right to make her move. Well that and her age, as she is that much younger than him. You can see that she – like she says – wants to play house and be owned by him in a way to make herself feel safe. She has clearly been planning the night for a while and is leaving nothing to chance. Even to the point of making sure that little Mikey is so sleepy there is no chance he will wake up and disrupt what she has planned. She already cares for Shane’s little boy and now only wants to take care of him aswell. Not that he is complaining much. He thinks all his Christmases have come at once when she starts to make her move.

I like that Shane doesn’t think straight away that he can clearly claim this younger woman in front of him. He is a bit weary and even tries to make comments about how she should be with people her own age. I think by the end of the meal she made for him though that he is completely tuned in to what she has planned and soon wastes no time in taking charge. He has a subtle commanding nature about him that clearly has drawn Jenna in and once he has her she doesn’t want him to let her go.

The sexual tension builds until they can’t keep their hands off each other. Hot night of sex by a roaring fire anyone? A fantasy come to life maybe but seems to work very well for them. They clearly match each other in characteristics as well as sexual need. Shane has clearly stored up a lot of pent up sexual energy that Jenna can’t wait for him to unleash on her. She’s just hoping it won’t be a one-time thing and that she can get what she has wanted for so long.

Another fun short read that you feel you could quite easily drop back into later down the line just so you could see what other fun things they could get up to. Jenna’s hoping that his age has taught him a lot of fun interesting positions to try, and she intends to try them all.
